Jim Hart’s pathetic, straw-grasping piece in the June 23 Pilot suggests President Trump might be tempted to accept foreign intelligence on his political foes. Given the documented international corruption that took place under Jim’s pals in the Barack Obama administration, any sane person would be tempted to keep tabs on avowed enemies.
Let’s see: Hillary Clinton selling government access to enrich The Clinton Foundation and her family; Attorney General Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” guns to Mexican drug cartels program; Hillary’s Uranium One deal, which gave Russians access to U.S. uranium stockpiles; then-Vice President Joe Biden’s intervention within the Ukrainian justice system — withholding $1 billion of U.S. pledged funds until a Prosecutor General was fired — to protect his son, Hunter; Obama’s $1.8 billion cash “gift” to fund the Iranian mullahs’ sponsorship of terrorism; Secretary of State John Kerry’s sellout of U.S. interests in the Paris Climate Accords; Hillary’s funding of the fake Russian sourced dossier; Obama’s whispered assurance to Vladimir Putin via then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have more “flexibility” after his second-term election.
And these are merely examples we know about.
